Sound check: Bapu’s ashram road is noisiest spot in Ahmedabad city
Saturday, 16 October 2021 Back in 1917, Mahatma Gandhi chose a large swathe outside the walled city to set up his satyagraha ashram. He sought the quiet — away from the roaring mills and humdrum of city life — where he could carry out his experiments with nonviolence in peace. Almost 103 years later, constant honking from vehicles fighting for space on the road outside Bapu’s ashram has shattered its peace. In fact, the stretch between the Sabarmati ashram and Vadaj Circle records the highest noise levels in the city.
